SOMEMIEIIt about the year 1783, Jonathan,
a young fellow who lived away down cast, took
it into his head to make a voyage to Canton.—
' According ho fitted out his sloop, a titillation
clever venal of 'about eighty lone, and, taking
a crazy old compass for his guide, his two cou
sins,one a lad about sixteen, and a great New
foundland dog, for his crew, and a couple of
rusty revolutionary swords for an armament, he
boldly set
,forth on a. voyage to the Celestial
Jonathan was a mighty cute lad, and had
read a Bette or 60 about the great. devotion Of
the Chinese to the called ginseng, which .
everybody knows is a remedy for till things.—
He happened one day in hearan Indian doctor
gitio it as his ()Pinion that a plant
which grew in the neighborhood of Jotailion's
nable lulu"; was very
. much like the famous .
Chinese panacea, as lie had seen it described.
Hp took a hint from this, and rather guessed lie
would carry a good parcel along with him on
speculation. Accordingly he gathered a fow
lituldred weight, dried, and stowed it away in
one of his lockers, under the cabin floor.
Providesice r whlch seems totulte special care
of such droll fellows as Jonathan, who calcu
late prFtty considerably on their native ener
gies, blessed him with fair winds and good
weather ; his old com,,ass behaved to admita
tion ; his ancient chart, which had been torn
into fifty thousimd pieces and pasted on a bit *
onarpaulin, proved - a moat infallible guide ;
arid somehow or other, he could not exactly
tell how, lie plumped his sloop right into Table
Bay, just as if the old fellow had been there a
buildrid times before.
The Dutch harbour-master wns sitting us
der lie but on his 'piazza, when he beheld, thro'
the smoky of his pipe, his strange apparition of

and Bitch was hi trepidation, that ho stuck hi •
pipe into his button hie without knocking u t
the--ashes, whereby--ho- burnt - n — hole-iir - his
waistcoat. When Jonathan rounded I to, and
came to anchor, the harboor-mast:er ventured
to go on beard to get intbimution concerning
ifiis strange little barque: He could talk,,En.
glish, Dutch fashion, for indeed ho had been
promoted to the office on account of his skill
in languages.
'Whence came you,Nlynheer 7' quoth lie.
. 'Right of the reel from old Salem, I guess,'
replied Jonathan.

'Not I—unt if hat, I vould'nt Itafopelieved

Jonathan puzzled the governor about as much
ae lie had done the harbour-muter. But hie
mere were all fair and aboVeboard, and the
governor had not only heard of the new world;
but of the United Stites of Amerrykey, as don-
Mhan called them. Accordingly he was pert
nutted to onj )y all the privileges of the port.
Nothing etiuld exceed the wonder and curi
.osity excited by the vessel among the people at
the Cape. That ho eho.uld,havgtnado i voyage

and such an outfit . ; was, in their opinion, little

In the meanwhile Jonathan had 'at sail, and
was ploughing his way toward; Canton, with a
fair wind and a good prospect of making a
great speculation, for he 'had ascertained to ri!'
certainty that the article he had broiight with
was the real ginseng, which 'was ;pith bye
times its weight in gold. Ho went ashore ,at
the village of lio.tun, where he saw the people
catching wild ducks and gesso, tvldelt they

as our hero called him, a. hung-merch nut, who
undertook to do his business for him, that is,
it lie had any to do, which seemed rather doubt;
'1 chin-chin you,' enid Fat-quo, the honginon
'You don't now, do 'you ?' quoth Johathan.- 7
'Well then, I chin-chin you, and so 'we are even
I guess.'
Fat-qua was very anxious to know all about
'Jonatlian'e business; hit the Chinese were
such plagtiy slippery fellows, ho woe afraid to
truatthem with hie secret. fle'thertifore. very
gravely, and with infinite simplicity, common-
dad to him his cargo of live stock, begged ho
would dispose of th.nn to the best advantage,

Fut.qua did not know whether to labgh Or be
angry—however,ro concluded by Isughiog,
and.proiniaing to do Ine best.
The trifle which Jonathan brought with him,
had'heen all expended in maintaining himself
and his dog, and Fat-qua did not feel inclined
_to advance ,any_on.:tho ecourity..ofhiellveateek•
This being the case, Jonathan' one day brought
a pound Or Awe of hie ginseng, and asked him
-Carelessly what it might. be likely worth in
-these parts 1'
'Hi yah exclaim - ad the- hong merchant in

'Some email matter—nut much,' said Jona
than, who -- opinion if he displayed tho
whole parcel at once, it might lower the price
and injure speculation. . •
Fut-qua disposed of the two pounds of gin

pocketed in lees than no time, and chuckled in

clared it was all ho had -loft, and consequently
to the Jost moment the price was kept up.
Fat-qua began to believe - that Joe - Nottung had
discovered some Bidden place vyhato it grew in
-'the. neighborhood of Canton, or that -he dealt'
with the prince of darkness. He accordingly,
caused him to be watched, but our hero WSB

Fat•qua was determined l teCignalizo this tri

foreigners, by a great feast or bears-claws,

H o ,therelore„invited a numbe'r of the Fan,
IrAVeis about the factory, to meet at Jonathan's
country-Seal, near the gardens ol.Fa-Te; and
they had q jolly time of it. Our hero was
complimented with a pair of chop-tielcv of the
Mos , elegant 'construction and materials,-which
he managed with such skill, that by - .the time,
the dinner was over, lie was well nigh starved
to death.
The hong .merchant, Fut-qua, was a jolly
little fellow, "about knee high to a toad,' as'
Jonathan used to say, and fond of q, good glass.
of wino. He plied his guests pretty neatly,
until they began to feel a little top-heavy,, and,
sailed away, one by one, under rather high
steam, leaving Jonathon and his friend alone
together, the latter fast asleep. Jonathan was
by this" time in high feather, and thought this
would be a good time to take • a peep at the
.estublishment ['Phis friend, that he might know
something oil these mutters when he got home.
He‘arose without disturbing the little fat
gentleman, and 'proceeded, to penetrate into the,
into the interiorlof - the house, until he earne,to
the female apartments, in one of which he
saw a young lady smoking, to whom he paid
his comp liments .. twith a Jow bow. Hor pipe .
was'forViieci of slender pieces of bamboo, high.'
polished, with a bowl of silver and 'a
piece of aniber. Her hair was-beautifully
long, and taisjefully dressed`'' with flowers and
gold and, siOer bodkins, and the whole atmos
phere of the room was perfumed with jasmine
and other . odoriferous plants and shrubs.. By
her side lay a guitar, on which alto seamed to
have been playing.
Tile entrance of Jonathon thkett .her into
great contusion, and she uttered several vie
lent screams, which, however, brought no one
to her assistance. Tho illustrious Fat qua was
still sleeping in his seal, and the servants ma
king-merry as - usual - with 'the remains of the
leas , "-for-Iris
intrusion; but the more he apologized the lou-.
der the young lady screamed. Jonathan won
dered what could be the matter with her.
'Weil I never saw anything like this grow
ing among corn—what's come over the gal?—
May 1 be chiselled • if 1 don't think - she's afeard
I'll eat her. But, wily the- dickens if she's
frightened - , don't she scamper off,•,that being
the most nat'ral way of getting out of danger.'
Jonathan did know the feet of the pour young
damsel were not more than Iwo inches and a
half long, and that she could tio more run than
fly.. They were what the Chinese pools Call a
couple of "golden lilies." •
Encouraged by this notion, that hecpretend
ing to be frightened was all slicer affectation,
he approached her still hearer ; took up the
guitar, and begged her to play him a tune, such
Qs 'Yankee Doodle," or anything of that sort
that was pretty easily managed, ,for he did not
much admire—any—of, your-fashionable gim—
